    Obama awarding Medal of Honor to Army captain

    WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama is awarding the nation's highest military honor to a former Army captain who tackled a suicide bomber while serving in Afghanistan.

    Florent Groberg, 32, is being credited with saving fellow soldier's lives with his actions in August 2012. He was also badly injured in the attack, which killed four people.

    The ceremony takes place Thursday morning at the White House and marks only the 10th time a living service member has received the Medal of Honor for actions in Afghanistan or Iraq. Seven more were posthumously awarded the medal.

    Groberg was born in Poissy, France. He became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 2001, the same year he graduated from high school in Maryland. He also competed in track and cross country at the University of Maryland before entering the Army in 2008.
